The plant produces striking upright spikes of lilac-purple flowers with maroon spotted throats that face outward, making it an award-winning favourite among gardeners.
In The Records
The Foxglove plant is a biennial that is indigenous to Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia. It is commonly known as Foxglove because its spike of flowers resembles a cluster of gloves. It was believed that areas, where Foxgloves grew naturally, were home to fairies, and so the plants were called fairies' gloves.
